From Yarn to Floss

Miss P allowed me to finish a pair of booties to match the afghan I completed last week. Now to get the package out in the mail.
Then I started playing with a skein of Cascade 220 Paints yarn I bought recently. I've tried two patterns and neither of them is working out. In both of them the colors get muddied together. Does anyone have any suggestions for a crochet pattern for variegated yarns?
This morning Miss P decided it was time to put the yarn away and play with floss instead. I straightened up my stitching corner and pulled out the last stitchery block from Gail Pan's A Christmas Wish BOM. I've had the block prepped and sitting in the hoop since she published it a few months ago. I have a plan for the blocks now I need to execute it.
Who knows what I'll work on tomorrow? Mr. E will be here and I heard that tonight he stood without holding onto anything. I wonder if he'll do it for me . . .

Happy Stitching!
Sweet P

The booties match an afghan I recently completed and gave to Project Linus. And don't forget: I drew up a 10th block to the Christmas Wish BOM. You can find it on my side bar under FREEBIES.
